Scenic Lynchburg, Virginia

About two weeks ago, at the of end the semester at Central Virginia Community College, I took advantage of the clear, sunny skies by paying a brief visit to downtown Lynchburg, which is chock full of historical architecture. The centerpiece is Monument Terrace, which includes several statues, monuments, and bronze plaques memorializing the sacrifices made by earlier generations of soldiers. At the top of the hill is the Lynchburg Museum. The steps not only offer a breathtaking view of the downtown area and the James River below, they are a great way for people who work downtown to get exercise during the day.

Five new photos, including the one above, are posted on the Spring 2010 photo gallery.

Photo gallery updates

In addition, I've been busy reformatting the photo gallery page with separate pages for each blog category and new drop-down menus for each year. I also reformatted some of the older ones such as the Richmond 2009 page, making them interactive and quicker to load. I just added three more photos from our class field trip to Richmond last year to that page. (Unfortunately, I didn't bring a camera to this year's field trip.) I will tackle the rest of the photo galleries over the next few weeks.

blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
